Air Products of Trexlertown is experiencing some firsts with a new liquefied natural gas deal it has reached to provide technology to be used in a floating liquefied natural gas facility in the Indian Ocean, off Mozambique, Africa.
“Air Products is very pleased to be involved with a few more firsts in our work with the global LNG industry,” said Samir J. Serhan, executive vice president at Air Products. “The Coral South LNG Project is Air Products’ first time providing our proprietary LNG technology in Mozambique, and it will also be the first deep-water FLNG project for Africa.”
The agreement also marks the 20th country in which Air Products will have its LNG technology.
The company said a majority of total worldwide LNG is produced with Air Products technology.
The African facility’s liquefaction capacity will be 3.4 million tons per year.
The FLNG plant will be moored and operate on the surface above 6,500 feet of water in the Indian Ocean in a natural gas field known as Area 4 of the Coral Field.
